User Review: Vasque Men's Clarion Impact (High)
Use: light loads / day trips
Break-in Period: 1 week or less
Weight: 3 lbs
Price Paid: $90
These boots aren't bad. They have really nice ankle support (I bought them after I injured my ankle cycling). They have a steel shank and the heal cup really helps stop ankle pivoting.
Vasque sells inserts that allow this boot to have different widths. I chose the "wide" insert. They do breathe pretty well but they aren't waterproof by any stretch of the imagination. I found the soles to be pretty good as far as stablity on wet rocks and roots goes. They've held up pretty well so far, I've worn them around the home and at work this past winter and on a few day trips.
